To many:

(My apologies to those of you who receive this 2 or 3 times, as I am using
multiple mailing lists for this announcement).

	CDEV 1.0.1 has been released.  Release notes, a user's manual,
	and compressed tar files are now available via anon ftp, also
	accessible from the web:

	WWW URL:  http://www.cebaf.gov/cdev

	The cdev (control device) C++ library is designed to provide a
	standard application programming interface (API) to one or
	more underlying packages, typically control system interfaces.
	The implementation is in 2 layers: the uppermost layer is used
	directly by an application, and provides an abstraction of the
	underlying package as well as many general purpose features.
	The second layer (service layer) provides the interface to one
	or more underlying packages, and is implemented as loadable
	libraries.

	cdev was initially developed by the EPICS collaboration, and
	is now available to anyone to take.  We welcome all comments,
	suggestions, bug reports, and (especially) bug fixes.  There
	are many planned enhancements, and we welcome volunteers to
	contribute to this project.  See the release notes for a
	summary of planned features.

We are still working out problems building cdev on various versions of
different compilers, so if you encounter problems, let us know.  The web
site explains how to join a cdev mailing list, and future announcements
of bug fixes and releases will go out on that list.

We will be continuing to expand the documentation as quickly as possible.
I am especially eager for those of you who attended the software bus workshop 
at CERN to be able to test this API with your own systems, and will try to
provide as much assistance as we can.

Regards,

Chip
